It's a nice coin. I would say EF grade...too much wear on hair.

I'm going to ignore the second part of the statement. Thanks Kopper Ken!

I think you did fine with that one. It may have been more than you wanted to spend but it will be worth it in the long run.
Just for future reference, I buy most of my higher dollar coins from Heritage Auctions. You can get some really good deals if you're patient and look for what you want. I got a 1916-D Merc in AG3 from them a while back, but it's so close to G4 I would have paid more than what I got it for. It took me 6 months of looking at every one that went up for auction and losing a lot but in the end I got what I wanted.
Ebay is good too for a nice bargain now and again but there are so many variables (bad pics, not many for sale etc.) That I keep going back to Heritage. After you bid on a few coins from a big auction place you will feel right at home win or lose

So now the question is...are you going to leave your VDB in the slab or break it out!

Thanks malfero. I'll have to check them out when I go to get a 16D. And I'm 99.99% sure that I'll leave this one in the slab

The first one was album material. This one I would leave it in the slab.

I called it EF, and would say EF45 which is 5 pts. away from the AU50, because I personally find it difficult to call something Almost Uncirculated when it is closer to an EF than it is to an uncirculated coin. That's only my preference. I do find that there are too many grades especially at the MS level.

I think most people will use the PCGS grade when looking up it's value though, so I think it would go for at least $900 if I decide to sell it. But I think I'll just be happy with it for awhile.

Although, I can see me possibly selling it to fund the purchases of a slabbed low grade svdb, and a slabbed low grade 16d, so I can know they're legit, and then crack em out to complete my books

It's a nice coin representing that year/mm... if I collected Lincolns, I would be extremely happy having that coin in my collection.

So I bought my coin on 7/2/19, a day in which there was a total solar eclipse visible in South America. Now it's 7/16/19, a day in which there's a partial lunar eclipse visible in Europe, and my coin has finally arrived! I must say that I am totally satisfied with this purchase!




P.S. The pictures really don't do it justice.

Congrats Joe, I think you did really well. time to crack it out and dip it in some VerdiCare then hit it with a brillo pad for good measure. LOL!

That's a joke

Oh darn I'm not getting any post notifications on this so I missed all the excitement...

You did well, more than twice as nice as the last one you had.

Congrats !
